Magnetization measurements for quench and melt growth processed Y 1Ba2Cu3O7 bulks were performed in high fields up to 23 T at 4.2 K. The values of JcM derived from the magnetization hysteresis for B//c-axis were comparable to the intragrain current densities in fields up to 10 T as expected, and abruptly decreased in higher fields. The values of JcM for B perpendicular to c-axis were a few orders of magnitude smaller than the intragrain current densities. These results indicate that the size of subdomain boundaries involving weak-links presumably decreases with applying magnetic fields.
